Trump denies that he has a bad relationship with Theresa May, insists they're 'on the same wavelength'

President Trump insisted Thursday that he is definitely not at odds with British Prime Minister Theresa May.

As May sat next to him at a press conference at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Trump claimed that his relationship with the U.K. leader was quite strong. "We're on the same wavelength in every respect," he said.

Trump acknowledged that "some people don't necessarily believe" that he and May enjoy each other's company, but he insisted they have a "really great relationship." May simply nodded as the president said that he believes "the feeling is mutual from the standpoint of liking each other a lot."

As Trump tried to wrap up the press conference, a reporter asked if he would still visit the U.K. Motioning to May, Trump said, "We will talk about that." Bloomberg reported Wednesday that the president canceled his planned trip to the U.K. because May could not guarantee him "a warm welcome."
